    Dead's Nissan Pulsar GTI-R update 11-5-15

    The GTI-R's were a low production number car from 90-94. Less then 15,000 made in 4 years.

    Ok, so the story goes like this... I got this car from a friend that didnt have the time for it, he got it from a friend that got it for parts. Well that friend got it from someone that was over there head in project to start with. The car was cut in half, I'm assuming, so it could be imported meaning it was not road worthy. Well, they tack welded it together and then didnt finish it and did it half assed. I got it and wanted the car to be done right so I cut it back apart and did it the right way.

    This poor car has been bouncing from home to home getting in worse shape each time. I almost have her ready for the road and that has been my goal the whole time, to have a clean some what stock RNN14 Pulsar GTiR...

    Re: Dead's Nissan Pulsar GTI-R

    Well, really any car is almost imposable to paper in WA if it's imported under 25 years of age, but there are ways around it, you just need to know them. The hard thing is I want it legal so when I sell it, I wont have problems. I know guys that have had theys and taged them as VW Golf's since they look the same... haha

    Holy christ!! I just fapped!! I am a Nissan guy at heart, and had an 88 NX Pulsar SE with a CA18DE and that car was a blast! I was toying with the idea of a CA18DET and AWD swap from an Aussie EXA.

    Re: Dead's Nissan Pulsar GTI-R

    I love these little cars. Hot Hatch doesn't even do it justice.

    If I am not mistaken Nissan had to push this car out in low numbers to satisfy the emission specs to keep pushing out fire breathign RB26DETT godzillas :-D

    Same situation as GeoMetro still in production to balance out all the big V8's still being made.

    Either way cool beans and I love the fact that its a SR20DET & AWD. 240SX FTL!

    I curious about the chassis welding. I'm familiar with the purpose, I just want pics along the way! Looks like the sound deadening was a paint to get off, what were you using? Did you weigh what you removed?

    Re: Dead's Nissan Pulsar GTI-R

    I'm getting ready to cut the car back in half so I can sleeve the rockers and A-pillar and I'm going to take pics of everything.

    As for how and how much I took off... It's in a pile on the left front pan. I'm going to put it in a bag and see how much it really was. I just used a big flat head screwdriver and a hammer.. haha... took a little over an hour. Nissan's are not to bad to take it off of, but my Volvo project, its a career...

    Re: Dead's Nissan Pulsar GTI-R

    Let the welding and measuring begin!

    This is gonna be a PITA!!! I got the sleeves built and half installed... Working on figuring out measurements. I'm gonna be using my friends GTIR to get my numbers when I have the time to drive over... But its on the way! I got my half cut with all the rest of my parts so Im hoping to have it on the road before the end of summer!

    These are all pics of the sleeve work I'm doing... never mind the crappy welds, I need new tips and possibly a handle...

    Here is the half cut... Not sure the year and such, but it's got some goodies that came with it! BOV, HKS filter, Hella fog light harness, and some other things...

    Re: Dead's Nissan Pulsar GTI-R

    Interesting. So you had to cut the frame in half and then weld it back together? Is this to "show" that the car was imported in two halves?

    Re: Dead's Nissan Pulsar GTI-R

    Well, the original people that got it here cut her in half to bring it in. I'm assuming that they brought it right into the Port of Seattle and they will not let a complete body RHD car in without cutting it...

    They had done a half ass weld together. I'm a perfectionist at times so it was bugging me. Also this way, it will be more ridged then before and wont need a cage. Sleeving takes care of alining, and also rigidity. It's more for myself then anything. Also when I go to sell it, it might make the next owner feel better about it.

    Re: Dead's Nissan Pulsar GTI-R

    I hoping I'm doing this all right. I watched someone do it in class about 10 years ago when I was taking autobody in College. It's all in measuring everything right. I know the welds are good enough and done in the right spots. Just a bit nervous about having the windshield pulled out of the frame. No other car in the states is the same so I would be ordering a JDM one and I dont even want to know how much that would be...

    and thanks for the kind words! She should turn out nice. I cant wait to have another Turbo car again! I miss having boost! I'm thinking after this one it will be a Skyline or maybe more logically a GT-B.

    Re: Dead's Nissan Pulsar GTI-R

    Alright... got more work done.

    I got my measurements and did a butt load of welding this last weekend. I ran out of Argon, but got it re-filled and should be doing some more welding soon...

    Some measurements I took off my friends Pulsar at UP Garage USA/Fairlady Motors...
    He's been a great friend to have! He was more then happy to let me do what I needed to. He knows I wont hurt his car and wants to see this one on the road...







    Some of the crappy welding I got done... Good thing I got my new tank! No more ghetto welds! They will work just fine, but they look horrible! Now for welding the floor pan! :smt010

    Driver (right side) rocker


    Pass (left side) rocker


    A-pillar welds..


    And where I ran out of gas... Bird turd welds are no good at all!

    Re: Dead's Nissan Pulsar GTI-R

    Got a ton more done! Motor is sitting in the bay now, but will be coming right back out. Will be installing a new clutch. Just put the motor in for a car show this weekend and will enter it as a project....







    Also painted the front end... Car is now on the ground and rolling, but my buddy brought his GT wagon over and is pulling the motor out, so I cant get the car out of my shop right now... haha












    Polished out the hood and the rest of the car, paint is not that bad!


    Whats left on my half cut...
